A New History of Medicine and Family Biography looks at “How Two Pioneering Sisters Brought Medicine to Women—and Women to Medicine"
Join us for a discussion about women in medicine revealing the remarkable lives of Elizabeth Blackwell, the first woman in America to receive an M.D. in 1849, and her younger sister Emily, an even more brilliant physician. Exploring their allies, enemies, and enduring partnership, award winning author Janice P. Nimura presents their story of trials and triumph. From Bristol, Paris, and Edinburgh to the rising cities of antebellum America, this richly researched new biography celebrates these two complicated pioneers who exploded the limits of possibility for women.

This discussion will be moderated by New York Times columnist and author Perri Klass, M.D., a Professor of Journalism and Pediatrics at New York University.

This event is part of the American Stories, Inspiration Today series sponsored by American Ancestors NEHGS and the Boston Public Library.
